NEW YORK, December 4. /TASS/. The launch of the American Atlas V rocket with the Cygnus cargo spacecraft from the spaceport at Cape Canaveral (Florida) to the International Space Station (ISS) has been delayed for about a day because of poor weather conditions, NASA representatives said on Friday.
According to them, the clouds over the cosmodrome are too thick and the wind - too strong. Cygnus is loaded with more than 3.3 tonnes of scientific equipment, water and food for the ISS crew.
"With no signs poor weather conditions would clear in time for a launch today, the launch managers scrubbed today’s try. The United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket and Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft will be configured to launch tomorrow at 5:33 p.m. EST, the opening of a 30-minute window. The forecast tomorrow calls for a 30% chance of acceptable conditions at launch time," NASA reported.
